Taylor Swift is a Hero on Tumblr

The chances of Taylor Swift ever seeing this Tumblr post were pretty slim. Taylor’s Tumblr army of fans is huge. The odds of her responding were close to zero, or so you’d think.


NY Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo tweeted about this Tumblr exchange this morning. It looks like it happened yesterday.



Taylor’s reply:


Is it fake? It doesn’t look like it’s fake as far as I can tell.

Here’s a thought: one of the most famous singers in the world wasn’t to busy, too important or too cool to reach out to someone who is obviously hurting with words of encouragement. Online. On social media. Imagine if the average young person tried half this hard to make just one person’s life a better place?

Great things are possible.
